Why is everyone so mad that people are rightfully saying that Rooney is old and bad?

Well, that’s certainly one way to do it.

A great look from Unusual Efforts above the latest chapter in the story of Joe Hart, which might not be as sad as everyone thinks.

It’s hard to be too surprised, given that until yesterday it was seven times in two years.

What the heck is a flip flap? ... Oh, it’s that. Okay then.

If you see pdb around today, be nice to him. This is pretty bad.

And, finally, a video of how MLS used to do penalties back in the early days of the league. This is a shootout from the 1996 Western Conference Final between the Kansas City Wiz (no, really, that was their name - they’re now Sporting KC) and the LA Galaxy. It’s hilarious and weird and actually kind of fun to watch. Thanks to Nathaniel Perlow for the submission.
